Subject: A product of it's time (in more ways than one)
This is obviously a war time cartoon, with all of the distortions that implies. The dance sequence with the natives actually reminds me of an almost identical sequence in another Superman cartoon called The Underground World where the birdmen do a similar dance around a burning lava pit to virtually the same music.

I think what I like most about these old Fleischer cartoons is the quality of the art that goes into them. The artists who drew these cartoons were real pros who knew about color blending, shading, and the use of various types of perspective. Usually just 2-4 guys did the whole cartoon.

Compare those fellows to the 300-400 zeros who do each of today's cartoons. Their stuff looks like a 2 year-old's coloring book. Maybe if modern cartoon producers fired the extra 396 losers and kept the 4 artists who can produce quality, modern cartoons could amaze people 70 years later with their artistic merit too.

Subject: Interesting historical document
This is an interesting historical document. However, it is a little hokey and potentially offensive with its depiction of (african?) natives. Overall quality of the film was good but audio quality was lackluster.
